St. Francis of Assisi was an extraordinarily complex and difficult figure whose effect on his contemporary society was electrifying. Even today, many people are moved by his visionary message of universal toleration. Twelfth-century Italy had an exceptionally grim and regimented society, but the barefoot monk from Assisi undoubtedly had the courage that comes from deep faith and was able to transcend the oppressiveness of the time. In this Italian/British-produced film, director Franco Zeffirelli attempts to bring his vision of this great man to the screen. The contemporary (1970s) example of the hippie movement contributed a great deal to the style in which the story is told. The musical score, using ancient Italian melodies, was arranged by Donovan. The film is visually beautiful in a way which tends to minimize the squalor of the times. As the movie begins, Francis (Graham Faulkner) is the son of wealthy merchants, and enjoys his share of wine, women and song without serious thought. When war and disease devastate his neighborhood, Francis undergoes an anguished transformation which culminates in his appearing before the local bishop and removing his clothes to renounce his previous life and family before dedicating himself to God. The culminating dramatic moment is Francis' appearance before Pope Innocent III (Sir Alec Guinness), to make his case for an independent religious order under new rules
I soliti ignoti = Big deal on Madonna Street by Mario Monicelli( Visual )

28 editions published between 1958 and 2008 in Italian and English and held by 633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

68 editions published between 1960 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan), yet they are not typical
Senso by Luchino Visconti( Visual )

49 editions published between 1953 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto. The Italian government has forged a pact with Prussia, and another war of liberation in the ongoing Risorgimento is imminent. Countess Livia Serpieri, unloved by her collaborator-husband but sympathetic to the cause of freedom espoused by her patriotic cousin Roberto, meets Austrian officer Franz Mahler as she begs him to call off a duel with Roberto. She falls in love with young, philandering, and mercenary officer, the country marches to revolution, and her dedication to the cause wilts under her desire and obsession. Mesmerized by him, she betrays not only her husband and cousin, but the revolution, too, with tragic results
Il mio viaggio in Italia = My voyage to Italy by Ma ding shi ke xi si( Visual )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

My Voyage to Italy is a warm and loving look at the power of movies, ideal for fans of Italian cinema and Martin Scorsese. Scorsese brings an infectious enthusiasm to his recollections of watching neorealist and epic Italian films on television, and to his examination of the masters of Italian neorealism: Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, and Michelangelo Antonioni. While offering a solid postwar timeline, basic information about the intellectual movements that influenced Italian filmmakers, and close readings of key films, the subject of the documentary is less about Italian cinema than Scorsese's passion for Italian cinema, especially the movies that made him fall in love with moviemaking. Viewers seeking a primer on Italian cinema may be disappointed, while those familiar with both Italian cinema and Scorsese's films will find much to enjoy

Welcome to Collinwood by Anthony Russo( Visual )

When Toto fails as lookout, Cosimo is caught attempting to steal a car. In the big house, Cosimo's cellmate tells him about a fabulous Bellini, so now he needs a Mullinski. Cosimo asks his girlfriend Rosalind for help, and she looks for assistance from Toto, who calls on Basil, who draws in Leon, who seeks counsel from Riley, who selects the perfect Mullinski--Pero, who promptly reneges and then calls upon the burglary talents of once great safecracker Jerzy. The job itself is foolproof, so how do these bungling small-timers pull off the greatest heist of their careers without killing each other?
Ladri di biciclette = Bicycle thieves by Vittorio De Sica( Visual )

5 editions published between 1948 and 2007 in Italian and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A man and his son search for his stolen bicycle which he needs to hold his job as a bill poster; without the bicyle he is condemned to unemployment. This remains an important film although the reasons for its importance have changed over time. What is now most apparent is a particular stylisation which passed for realism. The use of non-professional actors, real locations and the absence of a complex story-line and characterisation, disguise the carefully calculated and detailed mise-en-scene, the stylised representation of an authentic environment. The son has been set up to create a sentimental commentary on the central dilemma. This engenders an empathy with the characters qualitatively different from the more usual identification
